Does Facial Hair Grow Back Thicker After Dermaplaning?


Dermaplaning is one of the best ways to achieve smooth, flawless skin. Dermaplaning is a simple procedure that removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells to reveal the brighter and healthier complexion underneath. When done regularly, it also aids in hair removal by removing peach fuzz or fine facial hair. After dermaplaning, you are left with softer skin that begs to be touched! The question most people have about it is whether facial hair grows back thicker after dermaplaning?

In general, dermaplaning does not make facial hair grow back thicker after removing peach fuzz or fine facial hair. It is well-liked for its effectiveness in removing unwanted hairs and dead skin, leaving your facial skin re-invigorated and smooth.

Dermaplaning can be performed by an esthetician at home or in-office.

As facial hair grows back after dermaplaning, the coarseness of it will depend on your genetics. Dermaplaning only removes peach fuzz but does not alter your genetics. If you have genetically coarse facial hair, it will grow back coarse and if your hair is fine it will grow back finer. Dermaplaning is not effective for hair removal because it does not remove the hair from the root. Dermaplaning only trims the very top layer of skin, leaving the rest of the hair to continue growing as usual. Because peach fuzz grows at different rates depending on genetics, dermaplaning will have varying results. Dermaplaning can be performed once a month to keep peach fuzz from becoming visible again.

The main reason people want to remove facial hair is for the sake of aesthetics and self-confidence. Dermaplaning allows you to achieve smooth, flawless skin without shaving or waxing which is often followed by annoyance with regrowth. Dermaplaning will not make hair thicker or darker, it simply removes the outer layer of skin and peach fuzz revealing the softer, finer hair underneath.

What happens when hair grows back after Dermaplaning?

Once you have had your dermaplaning treatment, expect your skin to look brighter, smoother, softer, and more even-toned. Dermaplaning is not meant for hair removal but will make your subsequent hair removal treatments more effective.

The most common reason why people opt for dermaplaning is that they are tired of dealing with the burden of shaving or waxing which often results in ingrown hairs and/or irritation. Dermaplaning creates a smoother surface of the skin, allowing for better penetration of topical products that you may use to treat or prevent breakouts.

Your Dermaplaning treatment will consist of your aesthetician using a 10-gauge scalpel (not a blade-like object what you would get from a shaving razor) to gently scrape off the top 5-10 layers of dead skin cells and peach fuzz.

Dermaplaning is often done as a follow up to microdermabrasion or chemical peels, which have made your skin more sensitive so be sure not to pick at any dead skin that may start to peel after your treatment.

Don’t be surprised if your skin is a bit pink for up to two hours after Dermaplaning as the top layers of dead cells have been removed from your skin. You can apply all of your topical products, serums and moisturizers immediately after Dermaplaning because you won’t have any issues with them absorbing into your skin.

As I have said earlier, do not consider dermaplaning as a replacement for other facial hair removal routines. It only allows you to achieve smooth, flawless skin without shaving or waxing which is often followed by annoyance with regrowth and peach fuzz and its coarseness will depend on your genetics. Dermaplaning only trims the very top layer of skin, leaving the rest of the hair to continue growing as usual.

Dermaplaning is not effective for hair removal because it does not remove the hair from the root. Dermaplaning only trims the very top layer of skin, leaving the rest of the hair to continue growing as usual.

There’s no shortage of rumours that after dermaplaning, most people find their facial hair becomes finer. Some even say they notice that they have less facial hair after several treatments with dermaplaning over time.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the disadvantages of Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is more expensive when compared to its counterparts such as threading and waxing. The results that come with Dermaplaning are not long-lasting thus you would have to dish out more money to the skin specialist which is not beneficial or preferred to most people. Another disadvantage is that it does not pull the hair out of the root thus it will not make the skin look clean or clear.

Why is dermaplaning bad?

Dermaplaning like most procedures comes with some side effects such as breakouts, redness, irritation and discolouration of the skin which is why it is not suitable for people with sensitive skin. Waxing and Threading will be more suited to people who have sensitive skin.

How long do Dermaplaning results last?

The results that come after Dermaplaning last anywhere between 3-4 weeks and as the sessions are expensive, you will find yourself spending a lot of money for trips to the skin specialist. This is due to the fact that the hair is not pulled out of the root which means that the hair can still grow from the existing root. Dermatologists also suggest that Dermaplaning is not for everyone and is definitely not for those who are looking for smooth and youthful skin.
